FRINGE: Convergence - Betelgeuse, Tyche, Elenin & Asteroid SO16?!

Several weeks ago, we were told that the star Betelgeuse was expected to explode as it enters the late stage of stellar evolution and that this cosmic phenomenon could result in the Earth having a second Sun. Brad Carter, Senior Lecturer of Physics at the University of Southern Queensland in Australia, claimed that the galactic blast could happen before 2012 – or any time over the next million years. ‘This old star is running out of fuel in its centre,’ Dr Carter told the Australian news website AU. ‘This fuel keeps Betelgeuse shining and supported. When this fuel runs out the star will literally collapse in upon itself and it will do so very quickly. This is the final hurrah for the star. It goes bang, it explodes, it lights up - we’ll have incredible brightness for a brief period of time for a couple of weeks and then over the coming months it begins to fade and then eventually it will be very hard to see at all,’ he added.

We were also told that, several weeks earlier, that a giant hidden planet, Tyche, about four times the size of the planet Jupiter, may exist in our Solar System. According to astrophysicists John Matese and Daniel Whitmore from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, scientist may soon be able to prove the existence of the gas giant. 'You'd also expect it to have moons. All the outer planets have them,' Whitmore declared. The two men declared that the hypothetical planet may be used to explain the change in path of comets entering the solar system.

Speaking of comets, we were also told late last year, that Comet C/2010 X1, also known as Elenin will come to perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) on 10 September 2011 at a distance of 0.4824 AU. On 16 October 2011, the comet will pass within about 0.23 AU (34,000,000 km; 21,000,000 mi) of the Earth at a relative velocity of 86,000 km/hr. The relatively bright comet will reach about 5th magnitude near mid-October 2011.

Now we are being told that planet Earth is in orbital companionship with a giant asteroid on its path around the Sun.
Earth has found a new companion that has joined its orbit around the sun, scientists have revealed. It may not have the most romantic of names, but Asteroid 2010 SO16 could pursue Earth for anywhere between the next 120,000 to a million years. And at a few hundred metres across, it is the largest space rock ever discovered so close to earth. But there is something unusual about SO16, say Apostolos Christou and David Asher who discovered the giant floating rock last September at the Armagh Observatory in Northern Ireland. Rather than follow its new friend all the way round, SO16 orbits the sun in a horseshoe shape, playing a constant game of catch up with Earth, they say. The closer to the sun an object is, the faster it will orbit. So when SO16 entered the sun's orbit, it was further away than Earth and therefore slower. When Earth finally caught up with the asteroid, instead of overtaking it, its gravitational pull drew it closer to the sun sending it back round at a faster pace. Now quicker than Earth, SO16 speeds round its shorter orbit until it catches Earth again and is this time pulled away from the sun, slowing it down. More simply, from the point of view of the Earth, the asteroid has a horseshoe-shaped orbit, constantly moving towards and away from the Earth without ever passing it. But from the asteroid's point of view, it orbits the Sun continuously in the same direction, more quickly in smaller orbits and more slowly in bigger ones. Christou and Asher say this process is repeated over and over again until the asteroid dies. At the moment SO16 is travelling at one of its closest approach points and will be visible in the evening sky for several decades to come. - Daily Mail
Now, I don't know about you, but I am a professional skeptic and I just can't help but to get the impression that we are being lied to here. Is it possible that these announcements are nothing short of a deliberate attempt to mask the path of another planetary/solar object coming into our Solar System and the perturbations that it will have on the orbit of all the planets, including that of Earth? Is that the reason why we are being told that Betelgeuse, Tyche and Elenin could be plainly visible quite soon to even amateur telescopes?

This idea of a twin planet or binary Sun is at the centre of the overarching story of the Fox television series Fringe, where the planet from a parallel universe is rapidly converging on the prime one. As a result of this imminent convergence, cataclysmic events are set in motion at areas where there is a conjunction, resulting in weak points in the fabric of each world. The repercussions of which are the sudden and mysterious death of people and animals, the extinction of various species of animals such as sheep, the destruction of a large section of western California due to a San Andreas Fault-type event, worldwide coastal submergence, destructive voids and vortexes, and various other weather anomalies.

If all of that sounds familiar to you, then it should be, it might not just be the creation and production from the mind of J.J. Abrams, but something we are currently experiencing now, that will escalate further in the coming weeks, months and years.
